WHAT NOT TO THROW IN THE DRAIN: 3 VALUABLE TIPS FOR THE HEALTH OF THE HYDRAULIC SYSTEM

WHAT NOT TO THROW IN THE DRAIN: 3 VALUABLE TIPS FOR THE HEALTH OF THE HYDRAULIC SYSTEM

Food scraps should never be thrown away in the sink because they can be a serious problem for pipes, especially if they are old and made of metal because the food solidifies and creates an obstruction that prevents the correct flow of water that stagnates in the sink. Furthermore, the pieces of food stuck in the tube ferment creating bad smells. A good solution to avoid this kind of problem is to put a filter cap in the sink so that even any small food residue is blocked without ending up in the pipe already. The filter that blocks the pieces of food should be emptied into the wet waste bin or as prescribed by municipal rules on recycling, as should be the case for all food scraps even if semi-liquid.

Hair and garbage

When you sweep the floor you will surely get a lot of hair and dust and even hair if you have pets at home. Once you have swept it, remember to never throw what you have collected down the sink as the pipe would obstruct. Even when you comb and hair fall into the sink it picks up and doesn’t throw it in the drain because the hair is terrible since it creates a tangle inside the tube that also blocks everything you throw away like soap and toothpaste, until creates a block that no longer runs off water without the intervention of a valid plumber.

All other foreign objects

In short, everything that is not water should not end up in the sink and therefore foreign objects should be thrown into the garbage according to the rules of separate collection. Cooking oil, dead fish, earth and anything else should never be put in the sink to avoid problems that require the intervention of a professional.
